Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Megumi Fujii vs Sarah Schneider set for June 10 Bellator show
I will be busy tomorrow so I'm doing this now. Bellator will announce tomorrow that Sarah Schneider will face Megumi Fujii at the June 10 show at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, FL. I've known about this for a couple of weeks but they have finally agreed on a contracted weight of 120lb. If you're observant, you'll know that Sarah fights at 135lb. She's from Missouri and her record is 4-4. Unlike some fighters in this business, she likes to fight top fighters. She has wins over Kaitlin Young and Julie Kedzie and has lost to Sarah Kaufman and most recently lost to Adrienne Jenkins at the Jan. 30 FCF show. Obviously she has quite a weight cut for this. As for Fujii, I don't even know if she'll put on weight for this. Back in 2006, she beat Tama Chan who normally fights at 145lb. I don't think she gained weight for that. When she was asked about it at the time, she said that if she wanted to fight in the US she needed to fight heavier fighters. Megumi Fujii is Megumi Fujii so I doubt it will matter. As for Jessica Aguilar, the Hard Rock listed her as on the June 10 show in error. She's actually fighting on June 5 in the same building. Bellator also announced last week that they have signed the great British fighter Rosi Sexton. She will fight in the next few weeks but no date has been announced yet. The rumoured opponent for Rosi is Zoila Frausto. I guess they have to agree on a contracted weight. That should be entertaining. And Lisa Ward posted on her Facebook that she has signed with Bellator and will fight on the June 17 show. Sherdog is reporting that Tammie Schneider will face Lisa. I think she's Sarah's sister. Her record is 3-9 and a fight with Lisa will be very deep waters for her
